April’s theme was ‘Manga/Anime’ and I must say, the 2nd costume the model had on was bloody awesome!
Along with trying to move away from the biro I also decided to play with colour this month

5 x 1 min poses ~ the 4th one was a challenge to draw as a piece of fruit, and the 5th to draw with not your hand – I used my knee

scan0007
top: 5 mins
bottom: 10 mins
scan0008
2 x 5 mins – the top one was a challenge, someone else had to control your hand while you were controlling there’s. I normally sit with 2 friends so it all got a bit confusing. The drawing above is me controlling Marc’s hand while Nikki was controlling my hand in her book

20 mins ~ This is by far my favourite Dr Sketchy’s art work from the last few months

20 min challenge ~ design an anime character

Dr Sketchy’s ~ March 2013

The theme for March’s Dr Sketchy’s instalment was circus…which was a little ironic since there actually was a circus in town at the time

I tried to veer away from my trusty black bic biro by using a brush pitt pen…I’m not entirely sure it was a good move

Model 1 ~ evil afro clown

scan0001

3 x 1 min posed – the first one was a challenge ~ draw as a piece of candy

 

scan0002

 

2 x 5 mins ~ the top one was a challenge to draw has a circus animal. I kinda tried to draw a lion but it looked more like a rat so behold the Rat-Lion

Model 2 ~ the mental patient

scan0003

2 x 10 mins – the straight jacket was surprisingly easy to draw ^^

scan0004

15 min challenge ~ design a poster – we seemed to have the dodgy seats this month and all we ever realy saw where the models backs/sides hence my circus name 😛

 

scan0005

15 mins (model 3 makes an appearance ^^)

Can’t say I’m pleased with any of this months pictures 😦

The models they had this month were amazing, don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard ^^ also drawing facial hair was a new feature too

Model # 1 and Model # 2 ~ beardy blokes who like tea

scan0001

3 x 1 min sketches

IMG_0987

3 (or 5) min challenge sketch ~ distraction was the theory behind this, I was constantly jabbed in both sides while trying to draw in a friends sketchbook (hence the photo of my drawing)

scan0002

10 mins

scan0003

I appear to have forgot to record the time, I’d guess another 10 min pose

scan0004

15 mins

scan0005

15 min challenge ~ design a Mills&Boon cover ~ This (drawing, tag-line and description) won me 3 mills&boon books ^^ apparently it made them laugh

scan0006

Forgot the time again but I’d guess 10 mins

scan0007

 

and lets guess 10 mins again for this one….or maybe it was 15 I appear to have had the time to scribble a background ^^

Our excuse for this month was ‘it’s the start of the year, we’ll get better later’ wonder how long I can use that one for? ^^

I also tried something a little new this month ~ pencils…yeah don’t think I like them much

Model #1

scan0001

4 x 1 mins ~ the top right one was a challenge pose ~ don’t use your hand ~ I used my wrists

scan0002

5 mins

scan0003

5 mins

scan0004

10 min challenge ~ Damsel in distress ~ quite liking my ‘getting away with not drawing mouth/eyes on this one 😛

scan0005

10 mins

Model # 2 

I changed back to pens, still mixing it up a little I used a inky type pen rather than my trusty ball point

scan0006

2 x 5 mins ~ I appear to have drawn an Observer (from Fringe) O.o the model looked nothing like that, see below

scan0007

Guessing 10 mins ~ challenge sketch ~ QVC style commercial

scan0008

 

15 mins ~ perspective is hard 😦 I’d moved to sit on the floor by this point, I’m not sure that helped any ^^

Once again we had a bit of a venue change, this time Dr Sketchy’s was held in a costume hire shop, random but awesome. while waiting for it to start we were able to rummage around the costume racks, I spent the night dressed as a giant playing card ~ Ace of Clubs

Model suit #1 ~ Panda

scan0001

5 x 1 min ~ the bottom one was a challenge ~ draw using one continuous line

Model #2 ~ Daisy v1

scan0002

3 min

scan0003

3 min

scan0004

 

2 x 5 mins

Model outfit # 3 ~ the Bear

scan0005

10 min ~ I was sat directly opposite this and it was kinda terrifying

Model #4  ~ Daisy v2

scan0006

 

10 min challenge ~ Dame

Model #5 ~ Marc the Panda

scan0007

 

2 x 5 mins. This was actually my mate Marc, who having donned a bra and captains jacket on our initial ‘playing in the clothing racks’ was convinced to get up and pose. He added the Panda head after finding posing unnerving ^^

Model # 4 ~ Daisy with a cuppa

scan0008

 

10 min challenge ~ Alcohol awareness ~ When I can’t think of anything I tend to over compensate with text, this time was no exception ^^ I do kinda like the terrified expression on her face, I reckon she’s seen that bear on the previous page

So 4 days after the normal Dr Sketchy’s they held another edition, this one was part of the Thought Bubble convention. I’ve been going to the con since 2010 and am pretty sure this was the first time they had a Dr Sketchy’s as part of the festivities.

It was held in a different venue and the fabulous Poison Ivy was back. All in all it was a pretty great night

Model # 1 ~ Poison Ivy

scan0001

5 x 1 min sketches inc 4 challenges ~ 1. normal 2. not strong hand 3. Stick woman 4. no hands (I used my mouth) and 5. as a cartoon ~ I’m actually quite impressed with how my ‘cartoon’ one turned out

scan0002

2 x 5 mins ~ I liked the first one until I tried to add an head 😦

Model 2 # Daisy Cutter

scan0003

2 x 5 mins

Back to Model # 1 ~ post routine

scan0004

15 min challenge ~ Draw her as a plant ~ not too sure where I was going with this but I started drawing her as leaves then added a pet Mandrake (from Harry Potter) the HP addition is my fave part 😛

Model #2

scan0005

10 mins

scan0006
15 min challenge ~ A Weapon ~ I LOVE the expression on this one, she wasn’t even pulling a face, I kinda slipped while drawing the mouth and this happened ❤ it 😛

 

scan0007

 

15 min challenge ~ statue of liberty ~ I’m liking the addition of scaffolding on this one, I’m not creative enough to change the pose to have her standing so this was the next best thing I could come up with ^^

Wow it’s been like forever since I updated this *is lame* I’ve still been attending every Dr Sketchy’s that I can so that’s something I suppose

Speaking of attending them ~ I was in Canada while the October one was held so obviously I didn’t attend that ^^ there was a double dose in November so I guess that makes up for it a little 😛

Any way ~ onwards to the first of November 2012’s Dr Sketchy’s

Model # 1 ~ Amazon warrior

scan0001

5 mins

Model # 2 ~ Poison Ivy

scan0002

5 min challenge ~ ‘draw with not your hand’ ~ I can’t remember what I used for this, I’m tempted to say my mouth
I love these challenges, it brings everyone else down to my artistic ability 😛

scan0003

10 mins

scan0004

I forgot to note how long this took but I’m guessing 10 mins. Also I hate this one, the legs just turned out really, really bad, hence the shading  ^^

scan0005

10 min challenge ~ Comic-style tag line ~ I’m really bad when it comes to making things like this up but somehow this actually won 😀
